Emergency Shelter – Walworth Street

This program will help you navigate the resources needed to get back on your feet and into stable housing. This is a drug and alcohol-free facility. As a guest of the shelter, you will be expected to work toward the goals you establish with your case manager. The goals are intended to provide you with the stabilization needed to maintain independent housing when you graduate from the program. 

For bed availability and a pre-screening please call us at 518-581-1097, option 0. We are unable to make admissions through email or the contact us form.

Please note: this is not a walk-in shelter. This is a wait-list based shelter, and the admission process can take up to 48 hours depending on bed availability. If you need immediate shelter, please contact the Local Department of Social Services office in the county you last resided.
